In general, Vitiligo on joint areas is due to the patient being predisposed to Vitiligo. However, we can treat Vitiligo on joint areas successfully. It is important to try diagnose and try spot and treat Vitiligo as soon as possible for quick positive treatment. Here we discuss How to Spot & Treat Vitiligo on Joint Areas.
How to Spot & Treat Vitiligo on Joint Areas
The areas such as hands, feet, knees and elbows are the areas that are first seen developing Vitiligo if you are predisposed to the condition. This is due to the joint areas being under constant motion and movement trauma. Other factors that effect the Vitiligo developing on the joint areas are skin lacerations, sports injuries, or chemicals (hands) from washing with detergents.
Vitiligo on Hands
Our hands are often exposed to strong chemicals which can harm the skin cells. If you are using washing detergents, make sure they do not contain any harmful ingredients. Vitiligo which is found mostly on the fingers and toes is called Acrofacial. Most people develop Vitiligo prior to age 40. About half of these people develop it before age 20.
Vitiligo on Feet
The lesions on the feet, hands and other joint areas are the most difficult to treat as the skin is thickest in these areas. Saying this, patients using Vitilox products have reported a tremendous amount of success in treating these areas. This can be attributed to the cream penetrating deep into the skin, and its absorption factor being high and lasting. Normally you can be assured of a 24-hour absorption treatment period by the cream around the melanocytes. As the white patches are visible, embarrassment can lead to a lack of self-esteem resulting in anxiety and depression. Anxiety can worsen Vitiligo by causing it to spread, and we do suggest that treatment is started as soon as possible.
How Vitiligo Develops
Generally, Vitiligo develops after a mentally traumatic event such as death or divorce or even moving to a new house. It can also be caused by physical trauma such as childbirth. Trauma to the areas of the skin that loses its pigmentation such as from sunburn, chemicals and cuts are another cause.
Recommended Treatment for Vitiligo on Joint Areas
Our recommendation for the treatment of Vitiligo on joint areas would be the Vitilox Pigmentation Cream together with the T-Cell-V tablets. If the patient is under 8 years of age, they will have to take Vitamin B12 and folic acid instead of the Vitilox T-Cell-V tablets The Vitilox Cover Cream works well on the hands and other areas of the body to cover white patches during treatment. Apply the Vitilox Cover Cream and setting powder for up to 24 hours of smudge-free and waterproof coverage.
